Ra-Ra Raffia yarn is an interesting yarn to work with. It is a wood fiber yarn that is water repellant. It can’t be washed but because it’s water repellant, it is easy to wipe down as needed. This yarn is ideal for a market bag for your veggies and other farmer market goodies… but to be safe, don’t use it for heavy items. It’s also perfect for carrying your crochet project if your smaller items are secured in a zip bag!
